Brian Falconer, Raincoast Conservation Conservation Guide Outfitter Coordninator, was interviewed on Global News and had a chance to speak to the importance of the new campaign to secure the Nadeea commercial hunting tenure.
“[The coastal grizzly hunting ban] is something that we’ve been waiting for for so many years and something the people of British of Columbia asked for, for a long time. We’re thrilled about it. But it’s not enough” – Brian Falconer
